IT Technology


Our IT Technology programme has a duration of two years and equips you with the necessary tools to work with the software, electronics and networks of the future.

As a student at the IT Technology programme, you will e.g. acquire knowledge about Internet of Things (IoT) – the technology that makes everyday technology smart and intelligent.
You will learn how data is stored, processed, and presented, and you will gain an insight into how data is able to control physical systems.

During the programme, we will work within these general fields of study:

  • Hardware
  • Network technology
  • Software
  • Project management

These fields of study will be consistent throughout your education. You will get to work in depth within all four fields, and learn the importance of creating an overview and an understating of the system as a whole. Read more about the different fields/courses here.

Read more about the programme’s different courses and fields here.

Our programme has a duration of two years. Afterwards you have the opportunity to continue on a 1.5-year long top-up programme giving you the equivalent of a professional bachelor’s degree.

During the first two semesters (duration of a semester is six months), you will work interdisciplinary and learn the technologies within the whole eco system of Internet of Things.

The third semester consists of elective courses that allows you to tone your education and specialize within different areas of expertise.

The fourth and final semester consists of an internship at a local company as well as the final exam project.

Optional courses

During your education, you will have plenty of opportunities to immerse yourself in the fields that have your interest. Especially during the third semester, where you can choose between a wide range of elective courses.
The electives allow you to tone your IT technology programme in a way that gives you a profile that matches your interests and your future dream job.

The courses offered could be:

  • Advanced electronics
  • Data collection and data storage
  • Complex embedded systems
  • Mathematics and physics used in electronics
  • Network, router and switch configuration

How does a week at the programme look like?

A typical week consists of project courses that will supplement and build upon each other.
You should be aware that the IT Technology programme is a full-time occupation, and a 40-hour a week work load is to be expected.


Your internship starts on the 4th semester and has a duration of three months. You will have to find an approved internship on your own, which has to meet certain requirements.

If you do not have a particular internship in mind, we can help you find one. Our internship partners are often involved in the education at EAL by giving presentations on current subjects, hosting company visits giving you insights into their daily work routines or by running projects of different magnitudes.

The internship and the final exam project is often used by our partners to assess the student with regards to future employment.
